London Underground increases productivity with better hand hygiene

With more than 1 billion passengers each year, the London Underground is a dynamic world with almost 300 subway stations and 408 kilometres of metro lines. A world in which speed and efficiency are important factors.

These important factors are also felt present for maintenance crews where hundreds of employees clean and maintain the subways daily. The efficiency at London Underground began to suffer due to poor hand hygiene. This is resulted in various physical complaints, reduced productivity and absences due to sickness.

Our partner, Dreumex, educates clients on the necessity to protect, clean and care for your hands. Here at Chela, we are responding to the needs of working employees with the One2clean dispensing system. The One2Clean system provides a full range of products to provide protection before working, cleaning while working and nurturing care for after work, making it easy to take good care of your hands.

“The true strength of the One2clean dispensing system is that it is a total concept. Each product is great value for the cost due to the combination of extreme, high quality products and good, economical use. Additionally, all products have a high quality certification to back them up in our assortment,”

says Tony Philippou, Sales and Marketing Director of Chela UK.
